Cindy Sheehan Awarded the 2009 Peace Prize for Extraordinary and Innovative Antiwar Activism


The Board of Directors of the US Peace Memorial Foundation has voted unanimously to award Cindy Sheehan its 2009 Peace Prize for extraordinary and innovative antiwar activism. In addition to this high honor, she has been designated as a Founding Member of the US Peace Memorial Foundation. Her history of diverse and impressive activities that advocate against war and for peace is documented at www.USPeaceMemorial.org/registry.

Michael Knox, Chair of the Foundation, made the official announcement on December 12 at an antiwar rally in front of the White House. A reading of the inscription on the plaque was met with great applause. Ms. Sheehan received the award on December 30. Knox thanked her for her peace leadership and for serving as a role model to others. She has served to raise the awareness of those who are not inclined to think about peace and the devastation of war.

The US Peace Memorial Foundation, a national, not-for-profit, grassroots organization, is spearheading a nationwide effort to recognize peace leadership by building the US Peace Memorial in Washington, DC, and publishing the US Peace Registry. These projects will honor the millions of thoughtful and committed Americans who have taken a public stand against a particular U.S. war or who have devoted their time, energy, and other resources to peace.

...should have gotten the No-Bell also instead of the war monger in chief.

Your "add comment" section is a fucking joke!

care to be more specific?

Probably because the post has already scrolled to the next page before comments appear!

Comments are reviewed before publication. Unfortunately, this became necessary because the open posting policy was abused by marketers and those seeking to raise their websites' ranking by search engines.

Chip:

That's quite obvious. It doesn't alter the fact though! I suggest you need some volunteer to do nothing but screen the comments. It should be very easy to weed out the abusive ones. No masters degree would be required.

Thanks for the suggestion, Al.
